It is very important for our daily, morning snack to be healthy. Most children do not get enough fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. Research has shown that 5 fruits and vegetables a day are the minimum required for good health. Fruits and vegetables are loaded with vitamins and minerals, are low in fat, sugar and salt, and high in fiber. No other snack provides as much nutrition as fruits and vegetables. Maybe your child will get into a fruit and vegetable snack habit for a lifetime!
Each child will bring their own snack to school everyday. Please talk with your child about what type of fruit or veggies they would enjoy. It may be helpful to take your kids to the grocery store with you so that they can help pick out snacks that they would enjoy.
Please follow these guidelines:
1. Fruits and Veggies will be the only daily snack allowed. If a different type of snack is brought to school, it will be saved for lunch time.
2. Every child will be responsible for bringing their own, single serving, snack each day.
3. Do not send dip or toppings of any type.
Below is a list of possible snack items:
Banana Carrot Sticks Squeeze Pouches
Apple Cucumber Slices Berries
Grapes Cut watermelon Bell Pepper Slices
Clementine Orange Raisins (or other dried fruit) Sugar Snap Peas
